Hold on, baby! Mother nearly delivers infant on Valley Freeway near Pacific

Troopers had their hands full -- almost literally -- trying to assist a mom who went into labor a bit earlier than expected while on the Valley Freeway Thursday morning. Troopers received a report around 6 a.m. that a mother was on her way to the hospital in labor, but didn't think she was going to make it before the baby was born.

26 Apr 2017 Teambuilding & Leadership with DISC Workshop - Wenatchee, WA 4/26/2017 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM


What's your current focus with your team?  How can you improve them, both individually and in group, in order to achieve maximum effectiveness and potential?  Do you want to grow them?  Are you forming a new team?

To respond to these and related questions, we have been using DiSC© to help us understand group functioning.  DiSC© is a validated behavioral inventory of our preferences.  It is NOT a personality assessment; the focus is on what people do (behavior), not what their underlying personality characteristics are. 

In these workshops, we will use this concept to help people improve their leadership capabilities by focusing on individual and team behavior.

8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
